We are one step closer to officially finding out who the Frozen Four are this year, and the Denver Pioneers took a leap in the West Region on Saturday afternoon. Denver obliterated Boston College in a 5-2 smackdown on Saturday, advancing to the West Region Final in the process.

The loss is one that won’t sit well with Boston College, who may have a gripe to pick over a goal call at the very end of the first period that sort of changed the tone of the game. No matter if that early goal would have counted or not, Boston College was swarmed in the third period and they lost handedly when all was said and done.

Check out the updated Frozen Four bracket now that Denver has bounced Boston College in pretty convincing fashion.

The Pioneers are rolling into the regional finals and they’ll collide with either the hometown Providence team or a dangerous Miami (OH) team that is always a squad to watch this time of year.

But it’s just the way that Denver picked apart Boston College that makes them dangerous moving forward. Boston College tried to keep it close, but when the floodgates opened in the third period, they opened in a big way. Even without the late empty net goal, the Pioneers would have destroyed the Eagles, and their survival in the Frozen Four is going to be very much based on that tenacity they showed on Saturday afternoon.
